India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli will join the franchise in Chennai on April 1 and undergo a mandatory 7-day quarantine period before starting training for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.

Virat Kohli, unlike quite a few other India stars, did not opt for bubble-to-bubble transfer after the completion of the ODI series against England. Kohli has taken a bubble break and was seen spending time at his home on Monday.

Notably, Kohli had spoken about the impact of being in bio-bubbles for long in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, saying different players react to the bubble environment differently.

"Scheduling needs to be looked at in future, because playing in 'bubbles' for so long, two to three months, is going to be very, very difficult going forward," Kohli said.

Star player AB de Villiers will be landing in Chennai later in the day and will undergo the mandatory quarantine before entering the bio-bubble.

Royal Challengers Bangalore though have begun preparations for IPL 2021 with a 9-day conditioning camp in Chennai. The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal, Navdeep Saini and Mohammed Siraj are part of the training camp which is being held at the Sri Ramachandra Institute of Higher Education and Research, Chennai.

The training camp in Chennai is being overseen by Director of Cricket Mike Hesson and head coach Simon Katich. The camp will provide an opportunity for all players to work with experienced coaches and staff like Sanjay Bangar, Sriram Sridharan, Adam Griffith, Shankar Basu and Malolan Rangarajan. The camp is focused on strenuous fitness drills for conditioning and strengthening regimes under the guidance of Shankar Basu.
